I’ve been holding off on writing this post because of the TREMENDOUS undertaking that it is.
How to describe the fashion of women at Burning Man?
I classify the fashion loosely into five styles:
First of all, let me preface this by saying YOU CAN WEAR ANYTHING YOU WANT AT BURNING MAN.
Channel your inner freak and GO WILD!
These are simply some ideas, organized into a blog post that might help inspiration to strike.
In a word? BLACK. But not necessarily. Think mesh, cargo pants, zippers, chains, holsters, thigh bags, combat boots, streamlined goggles, and sleeveless hoodies. Contains affiliate links.
This one really doesn’t require an explanation. Think macrame, crochet, colorful skirts, tie dye, dread locks, flower power, bell bottoms, and fringe. Contains affiliate links.
Think holographic, kaleidoscopic color, bodysuits and glimmer, see-through, neon and GLOW! Contains affiliate links.
Think neo-Victorian, steam-powered aesthetic, black and brown, lace and leather, and top hats with accoutrements. Contains affiliate links.
Think bright colors, Indian-inspired patterned leggings, chestplates, chunky necklaces, and lots and lots of unique statement jewelry. Contains affiliate links.
Ultimately, Burning Man style is what you make of it. There are no rules and there are no limitations. So have fun and let you inner child out to play!
A special cause which is near and dear to my heart is plus size fashion on the playa. I have a Pinterest board dedicated to all you curvy and thick ladies out there. Check it out, if you’re so inclined. 100+ pins!
